This week we will begin our fitness unit with all grade levels. Grades 4-5 will participate in FitnessGram pre-testing over the next couple of weeks. For more information on FitnessGram testing, please click on the link located to the right of this page (FG TESTING INFORMATION).
Over the next few weeks, students will be learning about the three areas of fitness (cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength, and flexibility). Students will be able to indentify specific exercises that can be done to improve each of the three areas of fitness.
We like to make it clear to our students that you don't have to be a "star" athlete to be physically active. Therefore, we like to discuss and particpate in a variety of fitness related activities that they can do outside of P.E. In order to support this concept, we are going to be doing a bulletin board titled "Fall into Fitness". On the bulletin board we have created a "Fitness Tree" in which we would like to display pictures of our students participating in some type of physical activity outside of the school day. Click on the link to the right of this page titled "Fall Fitness Assignment". Please follow the instructions provided and turn in to your teachers as soon as possible!!
We are looking forward to a fun fitness unit. Pictures to come soon!!! :)
